Mostly thanks to Top Gear, Reliant’s three-wheel cars have become something of an automotive joke. While it’s always fun to watch Jeremy Clarkson roll over in a car, this isn’t really fair to the Robin, which was quite successful at its job. There was once even a short-lived but valiant attempt to bring them to the…
If given the choice between a Can Am Spyder, Polaris Slingshot, Harley/Honda Trike, or this 1960's Moto Guzzi - the Italian is getting my money every day of the week. Behold, the Autoveicolo Da Montagna.
The Polaris Slingshot is not quite a car and definitely not a motorcycle, but it sure looks like a riot. Slap a turbocharger on the engine and a champion driver in the seat and it really roasts tires. Sorry, I mean “tire.”
A few days ago, in a religious festival in Palakkad, in the state of Kerala, India, one elephant had enough. The elephant was part of the four-day regional Thalappoli Festival at the Bhagavathi Temple, one of the oldest temples in India when he decided he was done with everything. While up to 27 vehicles were damaged…
One of my favorite things about the Lanesplitter community is that most of you are enthusiasts (even if just sarcastic commenting enthusiasts). Tyler, a reader from Indianapolis, convinced the local endurocross event to let him open an class so he could race his Ural in the mud like a true ‘Splitter.
The Polaris Slingshot and Dennis Rodman are a lot alike. They’re both a little odd looking, both flashy, they both love to party, both love to make a highlight reel, and both love donuts.
When Polaris asked me if I wanted to drive a Polaris Slingshot for a week, I knew the answer was yes - I just didn’t know why.
In their infinite wisdom, the car/motorcycle/three-wheeler/I-don’t-know-what-to-call-them gods have decided to bless me with a Polaris Slingshot for the week. What should I do with it?
Some folks get their kicks by jumping out of planes. Others like to keep dangerous animals like cobras and tigers in their backyards. There is a thrill in keeping something around that can poison or maul a person to death. Stephen F. collects a different sort of hazard; he gathers 3-wheelers.
The latest look at the three-wheeled Polaris Slingshot sports coupe/motorcycle gives us a glimpse of the gauges, which feature a swath of warning lights that look like stability control, traction control, and steering assist. We also get to see how crazy-low this vehicle really is.
Whenever I see an email from any scrappy new startup company touting about how they're going to "revolutionize personal transportation" I can almost always sketch the car they're talking about without even seeing it: a sleek, low, three-wheeled wedge of a car. It's not always the case, but it's pretty incredible how…
I've been fortunate to drive plenty of very interesting and amazing machines. From muscle cars to mighty exotics. Recently, however, I had the chance to drive something entirely different... and it's ruined my brain because I can't stop thinking about it.
Morgan had their biggest stand yet at the Geneva Motor Show, and everything they make was there. So why did I choose this image to illustrate my point?
Morgan recently announced it was bringing the asymmetry back with the re-introduction of their steam punk throwback Morgan 3 wheeler. Here it is in Geneva, done up like a sexy Spitfire.
Know how Saab claims to be "Born From Jets?" Well the Marotti trike actually has tail-fins and will probably kill you. Power comes from a 100 HP motorcycle engine and it weighs just 970 Lbs.
When it comes to segment blurring, the team at BRP's Can-Am have aimed a shot across the bow of both ultralight sports car makers and motorcycle manufacturers with their new Spyder. We've been following the release of this snowmobile with wheels since spy shots first surfaced back in December. And now we've just…
We love the Reliant Robin the way we love a three-legged kitten. You consistently feel sorry for it, but it's impossible not to feel affection for the damned thing. Top Gear, of course, tried to turn one into a Space Shuttle, and the season before that they'd turned a Toyota Hilux, a Vanagon and Triumph Herald into…
Robert Q. Riley Enterprises says its new plug-in diesel-electric hybrid is two months from launch. (It'll debut on June 16.) Purportedly, the three-wheeled XR-3 will get 125 mpg on its three-cylinder, 23 hp diesel engine alone, and 225 mpg when coupled with an electric motor driving the rear wheel. Riley, a…
